Tips for Caring Elder Person Teeth

HealthNfitness Tips: Elder Aged people have trouble caring for themselves; they may also resist caring for their mouths and teeth.

The useful tips for people who care for seniors:
  • Remind them to brush and floss their teeth daily.
  • If they have trouble brushing or flossing, a dentist or hygienist should be able to offer suggestions.
  • Schedule regular dental checkups.
  • Consider possible denture problems if you notice changes in an older person are eating habits.
  • Don't neglect an older person's dental care, since bacteria from the mouth ultimately can trigger pneumonia.
